History, development and general characteristics

Mitsubishi started the production of the 7th series Lancer Evolution in March 2001.
After the rules for entering the World Rally Championship were changed in 1998 to become a lot more flexible, Mitsubishi began to work on a much more modest roadgoing version of the Lancer Evo. The Japanese carmaker no longer needed to follow the strict Group A class rules.

The Evo VII put on some weight over the previous series and a special 1-year production GT-A edition was added to the Evo variants. The Evo GT-A was the first variant to come with an automatic drivetrain but it was only produced in 2002.
Mitsubishi stopped producing the Lancer Evo VII in January 2003.

Engine and Transmission

The 7th Lancer Evolution keeps up with the ‘family tradition’ with its 2.0 L turbocharged Mitsubishi Sirius engine. The engine’s horsepower officially stayed at 276, although the unofficial reports state more than that. The most powerful Evo VII racing variant was allowed to produce 305 hp.
Top speed for the roadgoing Evo is said to stay at 112 mi/h (180 km/h). The car has four-wheel drive system and either manual or automatic 5-speed transmission, depending on the version.

Lancer Evolution


Lancer Evolution was launched in 1992. Evo, as it is also known, it’s a high-performance version of the popular Mitsubishi Lancer. Evo debuted as 4-door sedan, but a 5-door hatchback version was introduced with the launch of the ninth generation. Intended only for the Japanese market, the high demand abroad turned the model international. Today, Evo is sold in Japan, North America, Europe, Australia, and Southeast Asia. The current series, Evolution X, will be kept in production until 2013.   more
